It’s hard to believe it has been a year since our first SEWING newsletter went out. We wanted to bring back a favorite project from that issue — a very “Charming” Valentine Envelope! Those little 5″ square fabric packs you see at quilt shops are often called “charm squares.” Useful for all sorts of projects from applique to scrap quilts, we decided to turn them into an envelope just right for love notes, embellishing clothes and handbags, and more.
This envelope is made from two charm squares of coordinating fabrics, some thread, a little ribbon, and a sprinkle of creativity.
If you do not have charm squares, just cut some fabric you love into 5″ squares — but make a bunch! These take just moments to complete and they are so fun!
